If you were (or still are) the kind of kid (adult) whose breakfast regimen consisted solely of sugary cereal, keep reading…
While most of you probably celebrated the life of America’s favorite Saint over the weekend, you also likely know that St. Patrick’s day is actually tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17th.
Now, if you’re celebrating tomorrow as well, you’re probably drinking Guinness, green jello shots, Jameson, car bombs, green beer, or some combination of the aforementioned items. But, I’m here today to share a different idea: Lucky Charms Cereal Milk Punch. Yes, you read that right. Your eyes are not playing tricks on you.
A few experimental tapsters at Parliament Bar in Dallas, Texas dreamt up the drink and created the recipe which includes, Jameson, homemade cereal milk, vanilla extract, Demerara sugar, freshly grated cinnamon, and Lucky Charms cereal.
Stephen Halpin, a Parliament bartender told Catherine Downes of D Magazine, “I have to separate the marshmallows from the cereal by hand [and] one box takes about 30 minutes.” He then makes the “cereal milk” by soaking regular milk in the oats. Not the marshmallows, because they don’t want the punch to be overly sweet. The mallows, of course, don’t go unused. They’re added as a garnish, along with the grated cinnamon.
According to D Magazine, the punch debuted in Dallas last Thursday, and will be available at Parliament as part of their new Irish Whiskey Cocktail Menu moving forward.
While we know the ingredients, I haven’t found an exact recipe out there, but I’m sure you could experiment to find what’s right for you.
You know what I’ll be drinking tomorrow. Cheers and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
